- reduce the cost, risk, and duration of your software selection project

At TEC, we've developed a comprehensive, three-phase research, evaluation, and selection methodology, and refined it over hundreds of selection projects. Each phase of our methodology includes a series of tasks and activities designed to help you choose the best fit software solution for your organization.
Our selection services combine these tasks and activities in different ways, depending on your needs and where you are in the selection process. We can also adapt our methodology to your project, adding, removing, and reordering activities as needed. And we offer post-selection services to help you through the contract negotiation and software implementation that follow a successful selection project.
